A survev of studpnf rminion
concerning new dormitories will
be presented to the administra
tion Committee on Student A
f fairs Thursday.
The new residences will be
built if a bill, authorizing the
Board of Trustees to issue reve
nue bonds, is passed by the Gen
eral Assembly. Action 6n the bill
is expected this week.
Jack Hudson, chairman of the
Interdormitory Council's Dorm
Improvements Committee and
member of the student Legisla
ture, asked yesterday that stu
dents inform him of their opin
ions on the dorms and the facili-
ties which would be built with the
money from the bond issue so
that he will be able to present the
students' opinions to the commit
tee on Thursday. He asked that
,uv...v v l. null III iiX, .A 1 1 A
ander,. at the IDC office or send
their ideas to The Daily Tar Heel.
Hudson said J. S. Bennett, di
rector of operations for the Uni
vprsitv, has listed four possibili
ties for thfi dorms which could
be built with the money. The first,
according to Hudson, would be a
men's dorm in the area of the
j North Carolina Memorial Hospit
; aL . Hudson said such a dorm
wouM he for medical, dental and
public health students and would
drain thm from the othr dorm
districts. He added that it would
possibly take the medical students
out of Whitehead.
The second possibility mention
ed by Bennett, according to Hud
son, would bo another lar?e men's
j dorm like Cobb. He said that such
j a dorm would be located near
! Cobb. Hudson added that a new
dorm of this type possibly would
be partitioned off like Old East

Jiew dorm, according to Hudson.
Hudson said if a women's dorm
were built, Carr and Smith would
probably be turned back to men's
Hudson also asked that students
jive him their opinions on the in
side facilities which the new dorms
would have. Among the possi
bilities he mentioned were sound
proof rooms, floors made of rub
ber asphalt tile and fluorescent
He asked that students inform
him of their ideas concerning di
mensions and facilities in social
and study rorvns for the dorms.
He also asked for student opinion
on the possibility of having a fac
ulty apartment included if the
dorm were one similar to Cobb.
He said that such an apartment
would house one faculty couple.
Hudson said such a setup exists at
State College in Raleigh and add
ed that, according to Dean
of Student Affairs there, they
have the best government and liv
ing conditions on campus.
Among other possibilities men
tioned by Hudson were dressers
built into the walls of the room
and towel racks in the rooms.
He asked that students inform
4iim of their opinions on these
suggestions and any ideas which
they have so that he may present
them to the committee on Thurs
day. Alpha Phi Omega Sets
